Mamarazzi Workbook

  1. 1. -  ‘Technical Overview’ in a Non-techy way-  ‘Cheater Modes’ and Why I am in love with them-  Seeing the Light (both natural and ‘ugly’ flash)-  Cassandra’s Top 10 List-  Post-Processing for Free and Cheap- The Scary Reasons to backup your Images- Get the Dang Images off of Your Laptop Sister!
  2. 2. ‘I have this fancy-schmancy camera and shoot in auto all of the time with flash. Not very attractive images! I want to have control of my camera and all of those freakin’ buttons’
  3. 3. In traditional (film) In Digital Photography-photograph- ISO (or ISO measures the sensitivityASA) was the of the image sensor. Theindication of how same principles apply as insensitive a film was film photography – theto light. It was lower the number the lessmeasured in numbers sensitive your camera is to(you’ve probably light and the finer the grain.seen them on films – Higher ISO settings are100, 200, 400, 800 generally used in darkeretc). The lower the situations to get fasternumber the lower the shutter speeds (for examplesensitivity of the film an indoor sports event whenand the finer the you want to freeze thegrain in the shots action in lower light) –you’re taking. however the cost is noisier shots.
  4. 4. ISO 1000/Lowlight ISO 200/Bright Sunlight
  5. 5.   The most basic way to define   The shorter the time left shutter speed is the amount of open the “faster” the time the shutter stays open. shutter speed. (stops motion..) ex: 1/1000 of a sec   The longer its stays open the “slower” the shutter speed (shows motion) ex: 1/60th of a second
  6. 6. Higher Shutter Speed- Lower Shutter Speed-Stop action (1/1000th sec) Shows motion (1/125th sec)
  7. 7.   The amount of light   The lower the number…the more light (i.e., “wide allowed to pass into the lens open=2.8) (controlled by the diaphragm Think pupils of   The bigger the number, the your eye!) less light (“stopped down” =16)   Each ‘stop’ is letting in either twice as much or half as much light. (i.e., f/2.8 is twice as much light as f4)
  8. 8.   Aperture determines Depth   The Lower the number… of Field the more ‘shallow’ the depth of field. (fuzzy back ground)  DOF-the portion of the image that is in focus. (‘fuzzy’ background vs. tack   The Bigger the number the sharp) sharp/in focus the background/image is
  9. 9. Lower Aperture=fuzzy Higher the f/stop-the more inbackground focus the background/image Lower the f/stop-the more‘fuzzier’ the background (more focus on the subject)
  10. 10. White balance is a camera setting that adjusts for lighting in order to makewhite objects appear white in photos (temperature/Calvin scale)
  11. 11. Tungsten Setting Cloudy Setting
  12. 12. What are they and Why I LOVEPriority Modes? Aperture/Shutter Priority, is a setting on some cameras that allows the user to choose a specific aperture/shutter speed value while the camera selects a shutter speed/aperture to match. The camera will ensure proper exposure.
